Tottenham Hotspur Rubbish Media: Spurs Odyssey - Get Your Act Together!





'Pekhart Disappoints'. And how was YOUR day?

http://www.spursodyssey.com/0607/u18car030207.html


Frankly these lads may well be in need of our encouragement. I am absolutely aware that performances at this level may be less than 'Champion's League' standard...

So what?

There exists at this level of football, as everybody knows, a sufficiently accurate and articulate value system. One that doesn't require silly headlines online that generate such disproportionate exposure...

I won't have the inconsistencies of our our first squad airbrushed, but picking on kids fighting their way up at 11am on a Saturday morning disingenuous, is nonconstructive, rubbish behavior. Get a bleedin' grip.

Am I too harsh? Who knows, perhaps. But I didn't get out of bed this morning and hang around in the cold trying to justify myself as some self appointed coaching guru.

come on, is that it. i just think it's unjust picking on equal i.e spurs oddessey. he goes down to see a u18's match and you pick up on his comments. just write something worthy. DON'T BAG ON YOUR PEERS. COYS

SPANNER SURLY YOUR NAME IS A REFERENCE

Harry Hotspur said...

While it is chucking out time on a Saturday night I think old harry has a point. Newsnow affiliates may well have a bigger remit than to headline that so and so wasn't any good at the tender age of whatever in a training game...

Mind you harry loves his position as rogue trader....

Anonymous said...

yeah okey. but harry the point i'm trying to make is= get off our lazy internet arse, and do some research of your on before pick on other bloggers. the bell has rung, last orders

cheshunt07 said...

These lads ARE just tryers. I agree with HH that running a headline knocking them is just negative and unhelpful. Suprised HH has actually said this but agree just the same!

SOL'S ROUND AT BARRYMORE'S said...

IF THEY CAN'T TAKE CRITICISM WHAT CAN THEY TAKE? AND STOP GETTING YOUR LOCALS COMMENTING HARRY, IT'S PATHETIC LOL

What am I manipulating exactly? Sorry if anyone else agrees with me that picking on youth players at this profile is ridiculous. Yid or not, you're an idiot. There are 100 other stories to run over 'Pekahart is a pussy'.

I stand by that.

Anonymous said...

clutching at straws? well why don´t you write one if there's hundreds? and like i said earlier, stop picking on your peers.lol

Peers on the web. Now that is a fucking lol. I agree with a n other earlier. odessy is boring as fuck.

brighton away, 80's also. sorry i forgot.........ohhhhhhhhhh, scary ohhhhhhhhhh. how the fuck did you get on the internet? degenerate shite. i heard chelsea was looking for support like yours.

dannyboy said...

anonymous 12.19, u prick. picking on the spurs future players, still learning their trade, is downright cheap pathetic journalism. am glad HH has brought this to our attention. lets hope pekhart dont read spurs odessey huh ?!
now f*ck off back to the bin laden bowl, whence you came you gooner turd.

Jol-TacticalGenius said...

Lets be honest we all know Perkhart/Mills/Dervitte wont amount to shit.

Like all of our promising youngsters they will amount to as much as a blondell or a Thelwell.

So lets forget about that and concentrate on the first team as harry says.

Zokora, what a pussy eh?

and i thought spurs supporters were kind hearted free for all types, not like the goons. maybe just a minority hopefully, i don't what to be stereotypical.

danny boy, your pipe, your pipe is calling to many men, so go fulfill your dream.

bigots, i'm ashamed. COYS

DVDDVDVDVDVDVDVD said...

Have to say I'm with the sane brigade here. These boys are tryers and it's a low shot to slate them so early on in their careers. High handed antics from cunts indeed.

KBurkinshaw said...

Maybe you should post something about what Carrick said in a recent interview:

"No disrespect to Tottenham, but sometimes you could afford to lose games there, because people didn't expect you to win all the time," he said.

"But at United it's different. The expectation level is that much higher because you're expected to win every game. And I'm loving every minute of it and looking forward to winning my first trophy. This club is steeped in success and that's something I want to be a part of."

When the f*ck did it become OK to lose at Spurs??!!?

Seems to show a real sign of complacency in our players - not a great sign for the future...

HH is a tiresome troll.

Cant take it when someone puts him straight. Somehow messages just disappear when this happens.

All you Internet Spurs fans are a waste of space and a disgrace to the decent fans, and HH is the biggest mug of the lot.

Go on delete it peasant.

And your Bale prediction was only ever going to get you into trouble....idiot!

Harry Hotspur said...

Good morning ambulance chasers. Great to see such sustained focus on the point made by the originasl article.

Is it good practice to berate youth players with the same level of exposure as first team players?

Correct answer: No, it's rubbish. Stop it. It's basically bullying.

Wrong answer: 'Harry Hotspur is a troll and I don't like him and he's a nasty man and he's not nice and... Bale hasn't signed yet'

I may well be a troll, but what's that got to do with the kids, and calling one a 'pussy'?


Shame shame shame.

Harry Hotspur said...

THE RIGHT OF REPLY IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.


This in from Spurs Odyssey.

"http://harryhotspur.blogspot.com/2007/02/tottenham-hotspur-rubbish-media-spurs.html

The article was critical of my headline for yesterday's Youth match at Spurs Lodge. I have sent "Harry Hotspur Number Two" this reply:-

Dear “Harry”,

I note that you have disabled your Blog to prevent further responses to my critical headline over yesterday’s Youth game. I would be grateful if you could publish this response on my behalf:-

1. It’s Spurs Odyssey. This is an independent Spurs web site that has been established for 8 years, and currently gets over 1,200,000 page views per month.

2. You have chosen the name of “Harry Hotspur” The Harry Hotspur I know runs a highly respected website that has also run for several years, and is a tribute to the great Bill Nicholson. It‘s called The Bill Nicholson Way and can be found here - http://www.billnicholson.co.uk/ - I thoroughly recommend it to you and your readers, and would urge you to come up with an original sobriquet.

3. It may surprise you to see that I do respect your point, and generally I do not seek to sensationalise the Spurs Odyssey Youth reports in a negative way. However, I was at Spurs Lodge yesterday. I did see Pekhart miss two sitters, and I did see him collapse in a heap under a strong challenge, and I did hear the opposing defender tell him to “Get up you pussy”. Of course Pekhart is a young developing player, with plenty of time on his hands to make the grade at Reserve then perhaps higher level. I am not suggesting he cannot do that. After all, he has been scoring goals for fun at under-18 level this season. I just think he was disappointing yesterday. Some Spurs fans may think that Pekhart is ready for the first team, but unlike Dorian Dervite, who made such a great impression against Port Vale in the Carling Cup, I believe that Tomas has more progress to make before knocking on the first team door.

4. Whether it is my sensational headline, or your sensational criticism, I don’t know, but the match report is currently one of the top ten Newsnow stories.

5. Spurs Odyssey has reported exclusively on 12 of this season’s Youth games, and regularly beats the Official Site, who usually only make passing reference to the under-18s. Parents of young players often contact us to thank us for our coverage, and thanks us for putting their son’s name in lights, so to speak.

6. One of your respondents describes Spurs Odyssey as boring. Over 180,000 different users in January think otherwise!"

I'll meet your points one by one out of courtesy.

1)Well Done, YOU can spell your own name correctly.


2)Get off your high horse over the use of the Harry Hotspur name. You pompous twit. If you or any other jumped up escapee circus clowns out there in la la land has any genuine or borderline sane copyright issues on the use of the name, do get in touch.

Having said that, I am still in the midst of extensive litigation with Father Christmas so perhaps we could fix a date early next year in order to proceed?

3)You made a decision when you ran the original report to both repeat and reinforce a dig at someone who I and others feel might well do without your self proclaimed insight. Frankly, at that level to barrack a player SO publicly who's career has barely started is nonconstructive and asking the question, 'who the hell are you anyway?', is lazy two bob journalism and leans towards bullying.

4)You seem excited by your Top Ten placing. I've had loads. I've run out the shiny medals, but may be able to unearth a bulk standard one at a push for you. Get a grip, you girl.

5)I bet Pekhart's parents are glowing like nuclear waste after your comments about their boy. Please, f**k off with the 'we're part of the establishment and friends to all' routine. I don't buy it. Just put your hands up to being over harsh on a kid.

6)I have not personally commented upon how boring your site is. I see that some posters on mine expressed an opinion that it was. I can only suggest you take it up with them.

I disabled the comments as the quality of posts coming from your site by traceable referral were not fit to publish.

Given the reserved access you place upon your own site the intermation I had 'picked up my skirt and run' was both disingenuous and inaccurate.

HH.

all good stuff harry. they've no business digging out a lad at that age etc and are have resorted to telling you how busy their site is as if that is relevant. fuck'em. I don't use odyessy simply because i'm not 'applying to join a forum begging to say what a fan i am'.

i bet they're loving your reply mate.

good luck against santa in court. i was gonna call my dog Pele, but you've put me right off.

Anonymous said...

does this mean I can't call my balls David and Beckham? :(

On another note, Pekhart did wonders for my Spurs team on Football Manager '07. So be nice to him :-)

Anonymous said...

Harry, you're a breath of fresh air - there's so much pompous dour twaddle coming out of every Spurs message board at the moment that I can't bear to look at them any more.

It's time Spurs fans who believe stand up and make themselves heard.

Here's to the Spurs Rogue Trader Commando Division and f**k anyone who says they speak on my behalf!

I see that my reply hasn't provoked another tedious blast from Odyessy.

That the sweet Lord for the boundless nature of his infinite and tenfder mercies...

And on their very own self proclaimed garganuan boards... provoked 8 comments.

Get behind the kids!

HH will be watching!
